My Gonads Roar: The twisted world of anagrams – from pop idols to celebrity chefs by Richard Napier Book ReviewBook ReviewBook ReviewBook ReviewBook Review
My Gonads Roar What's in a name? A few vowels and some consonants – or a whole new identity just waiting to burst free? In My Gonads Roar, expert wordsmith Richard Napier rearranges hundreds of famous names to create a parallel universe – like the world we know, but funnier, ruder, and much more vitriolic. It's a place where Jeremy Clarkson (Only Cars Jerk Me), Britney Spears (Best PR in Years), Gordon Ramsay (My Gonads Roar) and even Princess Anne (Nice Spanners) appear as you have never seen them before.

The Great Show-And-Tell Disaster by Mike Reiss and Mike Cressy (Illustrator) Book ReviewBook ReviewBook ReviewBook ReviewBook Review
The Great Show-And-Tell Disaster What has made BRIAN into a BRIAN and turned poor KRISTEN into a STINKER? When a young inventor named Ned realises he doesn't have anything for show-and-tell, he whips up something unique from the odds and ends in his closet. The Result is a device that scrambles the letters in a word, changing the object into something else entirely. It's bad enough that he changes his AUNT into a TUNA and the PEAS and GRAPES at the local grocer's into APES with PAGERS, but when he uses his device on his classmates and his unsuspecting teacher, he pushes things too far. Following a BUS ride (well a SUB ride actually) and a disastrous field trip to an art museum, Ned realises that he hasn't been kind. So putting his inventive mind to work, he comes up with an ingenious solution to fix all the trouble he's caused.

The Anagrammed Bible In this unique book, three complete books of the King James Version Bible are rendered as verse-by-verse anagrams, with the letters in each verse rearranged to form a different text having more or less the same meaning. Rich in literary and cultural allusions, it also holds the world record for the longest sustained work of anagramming in English (about 95,000 letters). Truly an anagrammatic tour-de-force! The authors of The Anagrammed Bible are both regular contributors to the alt.anagrams newsgroup, and Mike Keith is webmaster of the Word Ways site (Word Ways is the Journal of Recreational Linguistics). This book contains anagrams in many languages, mostly Latin.

Elvis Lives: And Other Anagrams by Jon Agee Book ReviewBook ReviewBook ReviewBook ReviewBook Review
Elvis Lives Jon Agee has produced another gem! This collection of over sixty anagrams is illustrated in Agee's characteristic pen-and-ink cartoon style. The anagrams themselves are brilliant, although not all original: Nudist colony = no untidy clothes, alien forms = life on mars and Albert Einstein = ten elite brains. But it is the pictures that make this book what it is; every single one offers hilarity to a degree that will have you smiling long after you have put the book down. Elvis Lives comes just as highly recommended as Jon Agee's other offerings (on palindromes and oxymorons); he clearly has wordplay in his blood.

Warm Voices Rearranged: Anagram Record Reviews by Brandan Kearney and Gregg Turkington Book ReviewBook ReviewBook ReviewBook ReviewBook Review
Warm Voices Rearranged With its appropriate anagram title Warm Voices Rearranged: Anagram Record Reviews presents a compendium of witty wordplay from the world of classic rock and pop music. There are almost six hundred entries arranged in order of artist. Both the artists' names and the titles of their albums are anagrammed to form apt criticisms of the pieces. Brandan Kearney and Gregg Turkington are clearly masters of their art. A good many of the anagrams in this book are wonderfully accurate in relation to the artists and albums anagrammed. Virtually every record review in the volume is negative but the authors explain that this is not their fault: "There is much to be said for the view of some sculptors, that their effort is not to shape a block of marble into a man, but to release the man trapped within the stone. Anagrams are not much different; one’s task is not to create, but to find something that already exists." The foreword of the book gives an interesting view of anagrams and their mystical connections. All in all this is an entertaining read, perfect for dipping into when you need a laugh. It's a must for any lover of words or music.
